If you’re looking for a smart new accessory that will help organize your life and tell you the time, but don’t fancy wearing a watch, then the perfect replacement has made its first appearance. The Mutewatch is a wristband which features a touch activated LED display, that when inactive is invisible.

You could call it your silent life managing device, as when activated it allows users to set an alarm that rather than make a loud annoying sound, it subtly vibrates so it affects only you. The clock display also remains invisible until touched.

This wrist strap device was first heard of when it became available for pre-order almost a year ago, at the time little was known about the Mutewatch though it came across as unique. Today’s news of the accessory comes about after an advert for it appeared flaunting its feature and various functions.

Watches seem somewhat of a useless tool nowadays with almost everyone owning a cell phone which pretty much does the same thing plus more. Despite this the Mutewatch’s Swedish makers will be hoping for much success from their product which is priced at $259. It is available in three colors red white and black and is expected to ship in July.
